We’ve got the knowledge you need to put you on the right track. From choosing your website builder and domain name, to understanding how to design each element of your site, this complete guide will walk you through how to design a website in 2021:
Set your goal
Before you design a website, be crystal-clear about what you want to achieve. With so many types of websites out there, you should start by deciding which kind will help you meet your goals:
An online store to sell your products
A portfolio website to showcase your art
A business website to manage and grow your business
A resume website to grab the attention of potential employers
A blog to share your knowledge with the world
An event website for weddings, parties and company events
A photography website to display and sell prints
A fitness website to book new clients
A restaurant website to help with online orders, delivery and payment
Once you decide which type you need, it’s time to start the exciting part - designing your site. As you set off on this journey, keep your overarching purpose in mind and think about how the design will help achieve your objectives.
As you move forward with designing a website, you’ll find that your choice of elements to include will vary depending on what you want to accomplish. For example, if you want to sell your photos online, try displaying your work in a portfolio format and including an online store where you can sell prints. Or, if you’re creating a website with the goal of landing a job, a simple and professional resume website sans embellishment might suit your needs perfectly.
Choose your website builder
Now that you’ve identified your goal, your next step is to choose the right website builder to accomplish it. A website builder (also known as a CMS) is a platform on which you can design, personalize and publish a website without any knowledge of coding.
There are dozens of platforms available on the market. Not sure which one to use?
Diverse pricing models: Creating, publishing and hosting your website is totally free, for as long as you wish. If you want to upgrade your online presence with some tailored features, Premium packages are also available. They include everything you need to succeed online, from professional templates and web design features, to a custom domain name.Design customization: Whether you’re a seasoned website designer or are still learning how to design a website, you’ll find that offers different creative routes for everyone.
Unique design features: design features are completely customizable, which means you can design your website exactly the way you want. From a suite of imagery and backgrounds to innovative features like transparent videos and scrolling effects, you’ll have plenty of options to start with, and you can always upload files of your own.
Define your layout
Once you’re logged into your platform of choice, it’s time to conceptualize your website layout. If you want to start from scratch, you may want to map out your website’s design on paper before you start to drag and drop. However, another option is to use a template, which is a pre-designed layout created by a professional designer. It offers an extensive library of free website templates. You’ll find designs for every kind of website, whether you’re looking to create a business website, a blog or a personal website.Start by browsing through the hundreds of options until you find a layout that you love. Then, you can make it your own by fully customizing all its elements and removing, adding or changing details like text, images and color.Of these designs, you can pick between a multi-page template and a single-page one. If your website includes a hefty amount of content, you’ll probably opt for a multi-page site. However, with less content to display, you may want to go for a one-page website. This trendy option is a popular choice for landing pages, event websites and other short-form content sites.
Claim your domain name
To put it in simple terms, your domain name is your address on the internet. It’s what your visitors will see in the bar of their browser, right after the “www.”
Registering your domain name is critical for online success. Websites with a customized domain are automatically perceived by internet users as more professional and trustworthy.
When chosen wisely, a domain name also helps search engines (like Google and Bing) understand what your website is about. This is important because it helps bring in more traffic to your website.
Now, how do you choose a domain name for your brand? To make it memorable, keep it:
Short: The longer it is, the higher the chances of visitors misspelling it.
Simple: Avoid symbols, special characters and numbers.
Professional: Your domain name should incorporate your own name or your business name, to avoid confusion.
Evocative: Hint about what you do into your domain name by incorporating words that are related to your business.
You can find out if your dream domain name is available by using this domain registration tool. If your top choice is still up for grabs, don’t hesitate to acquire your piece of virtual property. If it’s not, don’t panic. Try out different variations of your original choice by playing around with the word order, or adding “the” at the start.
Pro tip: Picking a domain name also means using the right domain extension. From .org to .com and .net, you can choose from 45 top-level domain extensions. It’s best practice to use one that suits your business type and geographic location.
Gather your content
Now that you’ve set the foundations for your design, it’s time to get practical and prepare the content that will be featured on your website. This includes your images, text, logo, videos, and more.
Use your own material as much as possible to ensure you’re offering unique and branded content. If you’re not using original content, just make sure to acquire your resources legally. It comes with a wide selection of media features, including a library of over one million free photos from our partners at Unsplash, Vector illustrations, and interactive videos that are exclusive. There’s also endless stock photo and image reservoirs you can check out.
While having plenty of material on your website is great, remember to always put quality over quantity. In an era of decreasing attention spans, the best way to catch your visitors’ attention is to showcase only your best content.
Finally, make sure your content is fully branded. Think of your website as an online persona - everything from the written content to the colors and fonts you use should reflect who you are or what your brand identity is.
